Text For Citation: 02 Item/Group: 001 Hazard:

OSH ACT of 1970 Section (5)(a)(1): The employer did not furnish employment and a place of employment which were free from recognized hazards that were causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm to employees such as rotating parts and in-running nip points: In the following locations, adequate emergency stop devices had not been provided on conveyor equipment were employees were exposed to rotating parts and in-running nip points: A. Truck Pit: On, or about, June 7, 2019, an employee was fatally injured when he was pulled in the in-running nip point at the tail pulley. The emergency stop trip cord provided was not maintained in an operable condition in that the cross pulley to direct the cable to the non-ramp side was broken/missing and there was an excessive amount of slack on the cable. Abatement Note: The non-ramp side of the conveyor may need to have an independent emergency stop cable installed. The direction and amount of force needed to trip the emergency stop device located near the head pulley renders the cable ineffective. B. Block Plant, Block Machine: On, or about, July 24, 2019, there were several chain conveyors that created in-running nip points. No emergency stop cable or device was located in the in close proximity to the conveying equipment.
